FOREWORD 



According to a recent New York Times article the Chicago Cluster is "an ex- 
periment in theological education that many seminary experts believe to be the 
most broad-based and potentially influential design in the nation." After men- 
tioning several dther cooperative programs the author added that "none has 
created quite the attraction that the Chicago Cluster has generated." 

Why this attraction? 

Because the Chicago Cluster is broad-based. That is one reason. Evangelicals, 
Catholics, Liberal Protestants, Mainline Protestants in actual cross-registration suf- 
ficient to provide opportunity for serious dialogue in numerous courses. Great 
varieties in personnel — in race, sex, nationality, age, theological understanding, etc. 
Yet each of the nine schools provides its own educational matrix and has as its pur- 
pose preparation for a particular denomination and tradition. And all the schools 
concentrate upon preparation for professional ministry. 

Thus a student is invited into a richly varied context and an ecumenical 
fellowship in order to undertake disciplined intellectual effort and serious for- 
mation for the ministry of a particular church. 

This past year there were well over 1200 instances of cross-registration, which is 
a good sign that students are finding the value in a wide range of choice as they 
shape their own best educational experiences. 

One unique feature of the Chicago "experiment in theological education" is the 
Areas of Concentration, four or more opportunities each year to specialize for a 
term, with the outstanding faculty resources from nine schools, in such areas of 
ministry as: Personal Transformation, Social Transformation, Celebration, Cross- 
Cultural Communication, Teaching and Preaching. 

Other features of the Cluster in terms of academic offerings constitute the first 
part of this book. Enriched library offerings through cooperation, ecumenical wor- 
ship, outstanding visiting lecturers, and a number of other events and programs 
enrich the educational milieu for students of the Cluster schools. 

Both as an ecumenical community and as an educational consortium the 
Chicago Cluster shows signs of vitality and growth which translate into an ex- 
citing and enriching context for the study of theology and for preparation for 
ministry.

CLUSTER INSTITUTIONS 

CHICAGO CLUSTER OF THEOLOGICAL SCHOOLS 

The Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools is an ecumenical association of six 
Protestant and three Roman Catholic seminaries. Its stated purpose has been to 
facilitate and coordinate education for ministry which would be of the highest 
quality, broadly ecumenical, and fiscally efficient. 

The Cluster was organized in 1970 and incorporated as a not-for-profit cor- 
poration in 1971. Of its eight founding institutions, five Protestant schools 
represented a corresponding number of denominations and three Roman Catholic 
schools represented or officially served eight religious communities and one 
diocese. Since the Cluster's formation, these founding schools have officially been 
joined by nine additional Roman Catholic religious communities and by another 
Protestant seminary. Jewisn presence and studies have been provided during these 
years through cooperating institutions. 

Six of the nine member schools are grouped closely together on the south side of 
Chicago adjacent to the University of Chicago. Two are located on contiguous 
campuses in west suburban Oak Brook and Lombard and one is situated in the 
southwest suburb of Lemont. 

The Cluster's diverse and extensive networks of resources for theological 
education are unparalleled in the Midwest and are among the most outstanding in 
North America. The nine Cluster schools offer a variety of academic and 
professional degrees at the master's and doctoral levels, and programs of con- 
tinuing education for clergy and laity. The almost 1,550 Cluster students have ac- 
cess to resources such as those represented by 224 faculty (of whom 179 are full- 
time), including 8 blacks, 18 women, and 4 Hispanics; more than 450 courses an- 
nually; library collections of over 800,000 volumes and 1,700 currently-received 
periodicals; contemporary electronic media equipment (including portable and 
studio video capabilities) and modern language laboratory facilities; and three cen- 
ters for specialized research and ministry dealing, respectively, with religion and 
science, the church and urban-industrial society, and theology and ministry in 
global perspective. 

Beyond the resources of the Cluster are those of six other Chicago-area 
theological schools upon which Cluster students may draw, together with the vast 
resources of numerous institutions of higher learning and innumerable 
organizations and agencies of a religious, humanitarian, cultural or scientific 
character in and about the metropolitan environs.

CLUSTER AREAS OF CONCENTRATION 

Introduction 

Among a variety of cooperative enterprises, the Cluster offers six unique 
programs of education for ministry which draw in an integrated manner upon the 
resources of its member schools and the metropolitan Chicago area. These six 
Cluster Areas of Concentration are Personal Transformation, Social Trans- 
formation, Celebration, Cross-cultural Communication, and Interpretation and 
Communication: Teaching, and Interpretation and Communication: Preaching. 
Brief identification of the major aspects of the planning process by which these 
programs have been developed will highlight their distinctive features. 

I. The Mandate for Planning 

The six Areas of Concentration represent the present stage of development in 
a process of several years of long range academic planning. Such planning in- 
cluded the combined efforts of faculty, students, and staff who accepted the 
challenge to develop "a plan which will make the Cluster more than a 'coor- 
dinating instrumentality' " and "a blueprint for doing better together what we 
cannot achieve alone and for creating new and better styles of theological 
education ... or of improving the styles we already follow." 

II. The Basis of Planning 

All such planning has incorporated the principle of differential participation 
at the level of both the individual school and the individual student. At the 
institutional level each seminary retains full control over its own academic 
program, including: (1) the determination of the nature, scope, and manner 
of fulfilling the requirements which its own students must complete in their 
home school; and (2) the determination of whether and in what manner it 
wishes to participate as an institution, or wishes its students to participate, in 
the Cluster Areas of Concentration. (Differential participation at the level of 
the individual student will be noted below.) 

III. The Parameters of Planning 

With such common basis for planning as background, other crucial issues 
emerged. The decisions made regarding these fundamental issues constitute 
the planning parameters within which the Areas of Concentration have been 
shaped. 

A. The Curricular Model 

Since each school in the Cluster continues to offer its own introductory 
and advanced requirements related to such matters as denominational 
and confessional identity, spiritual formation, and ordination, the 
Cluster Areas of Concentration are not designed as a core curriculum in 
which all beginning students in each of the schools are expected to par- 
ticipate. Rather, the Areas of Concentration are designed as intermediate 
and advanced elective offerings which are open to students who have 
completed at least one year of theological education and who have 
satisfied such other prerequisites as may be appropriate in a particular 
Area. 

B. The Organizing Principle 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to transcend the personal and 

14 






professional fragmentation which frequently accompanies educational 
experiences which are circumscribed by a particular discipline or field or 
by a particular ministerial role or setting. Therefore, the concentrations 
have been organized in terms of broad areas of functional competence 
which are relevant to a variety of ministerial roles and settings and which 
are dependent upon the integration of performance and insights from a 
variety of disciplines. 

C. The Defining Educational Characteristic 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to foster maximum feasible in- 
corporation of the following interfaces: 

1. instructional interface — integration of insights from a variety of 
disciplines and fields, both classical and practical, through the 
assistance of faculty teams whose members represent such expertise; 

2. contextual interface — integration of theory and practice through the 
utilization of action-reflection styles of learning wherein students 
engage in and reflect upon ministries of various kinds with the 
assistance of peer consultation and professional supervision; 

3. formational interface — integration of the student's personal identity 
and professional identity, wherein understandings, attitudes, values 
and skills appropriate to each are experienced and perceived as 
mutually interdependent; 

4. professional interface — clarification of the student's professional iden- 
tity as minister (e.g., role, status, authority) in relation to members of 
other professions and occupations which represent corresponding areas 
of functional competence; 

5. ecumenical interface — inclusion of students and faculty representing 
diverse theological andecclesiological traditions; and 

6. institutional interface — inclusion of students and faculty representing 
two or more institutions in the Cluster, and the utilization of in- 
stitutional resources outside the Cluster. 

D. The Defining Structural Characteristics 
1. Differential Student Participation 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to be sufficiently flexible to 
enable students with varying degrees of interest and curricular freedom 
to participate in one or more such programs in the pursuit of several 
types of educational and ministerial objectives : 

a. to develop a generalized focus of competence which may (1) serve 
to inform and enrich other functional competencies required of 
"generalists" in a variety of ministries or (2) serve as a general foun- 
dation upon which the specialized competence required for 
ministries in research and scholarship may subsequently be built; 

b. to develop a more specialized focus of competence which may (1) 
provide an organizing center for other areas of competence required 
of generalists, (2) provide necessary preparation for those whose 
primary, if not exclusive, form of ministry will correspond to one 
of the areas of concentration, or (3) provide a more specialized 

15 



foundation upon which the additional competencies required of 
researchers and scholars may be subsequently built; and 

c. to develop a more individualized focus of competence which may 
not correspond wholly to either of the foregoing patterns but which 
best serves the particular student. 

Functional Standardization 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to be sufficiently stan- 
dardized to provide a functional degree of educational coherence and 
administrative compatibility. The several Units which will be offered 
during the current year are described in the following pages. 



CCTS 1-500 PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION: INTENSIVE UNIT I 

(Not offered 1979-80) 

I. Nature of the Unit 

Intensive Unit I is an in-depth experience in a learning-transforming com- 
munity for students who wish to acquire intermediate levels of competence in 
helping individuals and face-to-face groups more fully to actualize their 
potential through multi-faceted growth models. It is envisioned that all stu- 
dents regardless of their previous experience, can grow, try out new ways of 
behavior for enabling growth, teach others, explore new theories and be 
members of the community. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which 
students will receive two or three full courses credit. With the ap- 
proval of the respective institutions in which they are matriculated, students 
who are involved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional cour- 
ses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I include the following : 

A. to assist students to develop a pastoral theological theory and research 
methodology relative to personal transformation which is grounded in 
the classical theological disciplines (Bible, history, ethics, and theology) 
and which is informed by dialogue with the history of the cure of souls, 
contemporary theory and practice in pastoral counseling and clinical 
pastoral education, and relevant secular disciplines; 

B. to assist students to acquire direct personal experience of selected modes 
of personal transformation; and 

C. to assist students to acquire appropriate levels of competence in the uses 
of various modes of personal transformation. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three principal components in Intensive Unit I: a learning- 
transforming community, ministry placements, and try-out events. 

A. A Learning-Transforming Community 

The faculty and students will be members in a learning-transforming 
community. The process of building such a community will begin with a 
five-day founding experience during January. The experience will be 

16 






held in an appropriate retreat setting offering opportunities for recreation 
as well as interaction. 

During this time group covenants for the quarter will be developed and 
theoretical and practical inputs will be organized. Individual student 
covenants, which will also be developed at this time, will include the 
identification of the specific personal and professional skills and 
theoretical understandings on which one wants to work during the quar- 
ter. With permission of the faculty member(s) involved, students may 
also design their individual covenants to include required work which 
they would normally be expected to complete through another course; 
upon fulfillment of their covenants to the satisfaction of the faculty mem- 
bers) students would have fulfilled all or part of the course requirement. 

During the subsequent weeks the total group will meet from 9:00 A.M. 
to 9:00 P.M. on Wednesdays and from 9:00-12:00 noon on Thursdays, 
possibly away from the Cluster. (Within these scheduled class sessions 
students enrolled for two full courses credit may negotiate appropriately 
reduced involvement.) Sub-groups/learning teams will also work together 
at other times on common interests, projects, theories, skill training, and 
personal growth. 

The learning-transforming community will be engaged in four continuing 
activities: 

1. Acquiring and developing theory, content, and skills related to per- 
sonal transformation. 

The theoretical inputs and content on growth and change will be 
wide-ranging and will be dependent upon the covenants established by 
the individual members and/ or group. Illustrative possibilities in- 
clude: prayer, spiritual direction, meditation, Yoga, and demon- 
ology; theological understandings of grace, reconciliation, Chris- 
tian community, confession, justification, redemption, and ethics; 
the meaning of the biblical themes, experiences, and words in the 
context of personal transformation and contemporary life; the 
relationship between piety and activism — personal and social trans- 
formation; theories of personality and human development; the 
human potential movement, including Gestalt Therapy, Transactional 
Analysis, encounter, psych osynthesis, and bio-energetics; and 
therapeutic models such as psychoanalysis and ego-psychology. 

2. Experiencing of one's own growth and of enabling others to grow, 
both within the community and in try-out with others outside. 

3. Reflecting upon the experience and theory. 

4. Evaluating the ongoing process and the life of the community. 

Evaluative decisions will be agreed upon communally within the 
following general guidelines; a paper or project indicating integration of 
theory and skills, as well as self-evaluation, peer evaluation, and super- 
visory evaluation, will serve as bases for evaluation at the end of the 
Unit. 



17 



B. Ministry Placements 

It is expected that all students will be involved in some form of ministry 
which provides leadership experience in personal transformation and that 
such involvement will be utilized in the Unit. Students without access to 
such involvements will be assisted to find appropriate placement during 
the quarter in which the Unit is offered. Students who desire to do so 
will also be assisted to find appropriate placement in the quarter 
preceding the Unit. 

C. Try-out Events 

In addition to the experiences of leadership which are expected of them 
within the Unit and within their respective placements, students will be 
provided opportunity to become team leaders with faculty members in 
designing, executing, and evaluating short-term personal transformation 
events for other persons and groups. Possibilities for try-outs may in- 
clude such organizations, groups and occasions as the following: 
Cluster, churches, lay people, house church weekends, spiritual week- 
ends, and experiential theology weekends. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students (1) who have completed one or more years of theological 
education; (2) who have had some of the following experience and training 
(one or more quarters of Clinical Pastoral Education; laboratory experiences 
in small groups, personal growth, etc.; basic courses in personal counseling 
and group work); and (3) who have obtained- the approval both of the 
school in which they are matriculated and of the Personal Transformation 
teaching team. Approval of the teaching team should be requested through 
an application form which may be obtained from the office of the registrar at 
each school. 



CCTS 1-520 SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION: INTENSIVE UNIT I 



Spring Quarter, 1980 

1 Full Course 

Friday, 9:00 A.M. -12:30 P.M. 

Enrollment limited to 25 

Initial Session at MTS 



Carl S. Dudley

McCormick Theological Seminary 

Earl L. Durham 

Assistant Professor, School of Social 

Service Administration 
University of Chicago 

Marjorie Tuite, O.P. 

Coordinator of Ministerial Program 
Jesuit School of Theology in Chicago 

Nature of the Unit 

This unit examines specifically the social justice dimension of ministry. It is 
designed for those students who out of an institutional base (church or agen- 



18 



cy) are concerned with the transformation of social structures within the 
framework of Judeo-Christian values. 

The unit consists of a one-quarter sequence of involvement for which 
students will receive one full course credit. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of the unit include the following: 

A. to assist students to develop an understanding of the interrelationships 
between Christian faith and the ministry of social justice, including the 
insights of biblical, historical, ethical, theological and social science 
disciplines; 

B. to assist students to understand and develop disciplines for strategy and 
tactics of social action; 

C. to assist students to understand the ways in which one's own beliefs, 
attitudes and values affect a ministry of social change. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three principal components: theoretical presentations, integrative 
seminars, and experiences in social change. 

A. Theoretical Presentations 

The theoretical presentations will deal with four general areas and their 
interrelationships; tactics and strategy for social change; social theory 
and voluntary associations; the Bible, theology, and social change; and 
historical and ethical analysis of the role of the church in relation to 
social issues in America. 

B. Integrative Seminars 

Students will share the leadership of seminars to integrate theory and 
theology, strategy and tactics, in particular areas of social transformation. 
Integrative seminars will be conducted at the site of the ministry and with 
the people most involved whenever possible. 

C. Experience in Social Change 

Experiences in social change are open to the student during the course, 
and/or in the summer following. Or students may have had a significant 
experience in a ministry for social justice prior to this course. These ex- 
periences will be used as a point of reference for learning in the course. 

In addition to churches, placement possibilities include the following: 
educational institutions (public, private, and alternative schools and 
colleges and universities); private and governmental agencies concerned 
with mental health, medical care, racial justice, women's rights, welfare, 
and housing; penal institutions and agencies related to the criminal 
justice system; community organizations; financial and investment in- 
stitutions; the Alliance to End Repression, etc. 

IV. Admission 

Open to students who have completed one or more years of theological 
education and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 



19 



Open also to others with backgrounds in theological and sociological 
disciplines and/ or in social change experience who have obtained the ap- 
proval both of the school in which they are matriculated and of the Social 
Transformation teaching team. 

Approval of the student's prior or proposed field experience in social trans- 
formation should be obtained before the completion of registration for the 
course. Such approval should be requested from a member of the Social 
Transformation teaching team. 



CCTS 1-540 CELEBRATION: INTENSIVE UNIT I 

(Not offered 1979-80) 

I. Nature of the Unit 

Intensive Unit I is an experience in a learning-celebrating community for the 
advanced student who wishes to become an ARTIST-INTERPRETER-IN- 
STIGATOR of religious celebration. The phrase "artist-interpreter-instigator" 
indicates that the objectives of the Unit go beyond assisting the student to 
acquire the ability to function as leader of public worship which is charac- 
teristically expected of all ministers. The phrase "religious celebration" in- 
cludes both the traditional forms of worship and also paraliturgical and other 
forms of communal celebration in the Judeo-Christian tradition. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which students 
will receive two or three full courses credit. With the approval of the respec- 
tive institutions in which they are matriculated, students who are in- 
volved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aim of Intensive Unit I is to assist the student to engage in the 
crucial acts of becoming/growing as an artist-interpreter-instigator, viz. : 

A. to experience and comprehend how communal celebration bursts out of a 
people from the events of their common life, and from intensive lived 
moments of individual persons; 

B. to experience communal celebration as a mobilization of expressive arts 
and spontaneity; and 

C. to learn to share in the common experience and felt understandings of an 
actual people, especially the People of God, in such a way as to enable 
them to transform their lived moments into communal symbol and fresh 
communal celebration. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are four principal strands in Intensive Unit I: expressive arts, basic 
theory of celebration, clinical experience, and reflection and evaluation. The 
ministerial preparation of the student will be integrated in terms of these 
strands through the use of various theological and non-theological disciplines 
and various educational methodologies. 

20 



A. Expressive Arts 

The expressive arts will engage and be engaged by the community 
through two related avenues: a Creative Expression Workshop and an 
Expressive Arts Seminar. 

1. Creative Expression Workshop 

The faculty and students will be members in a learning-celebrating 
community. The process of building such a community will be 
initiated with a five-day founding event at a non-Cluster site. The 
founding event will include a Creative Expression Workshop, which 
will begin with an intensive exposure to some basic human experience 
(e.g., joy, pain, loneliness, hope, grief, etc.) Members of the com- 
munity will then express this experience in significant art forms and 
experience how other artists have expressed it. 

2. Expressive Arts Seminar 

During subsequent weeks the regular activities of the community will 
include an Expressive Arts Seminar in which members will share and 
possess each other's "mini-celebrations" and the work of rep- 
resentative artists. In this seminar members will work with various 
forms of expressive art in accord with their ability, e.g., drama, 
dance, music, painting, sculpture, song, celebrative preaching, pho- 
tography, oral interpretation, creative writing, communications 
media, and staging environment. 

B. Basic Theory of Celebration 

Members of the community will endeavor to lay solid theoretical founda- 
tions for celebration. Other resource persons will be utilized periodi- 
cally. Areas of study include the phenomenology of celebration, symbol- 
ism and celebration, analysis of classic/ contemporary examples of cel- 
ebration, and structure and design of celebration. 

C. Clinical Experience 

Each student will be involved with a group outside the Cluster schools 
for the purpose of: 

1. Witnessing the process by which lived moments come to peak ex- 
pression in celebration in the group (first month), and 

2. Developing-teaching them to move further in celebration experience 
and life-style (last two months). 

D. Reflection and Evaluation 

The community will regularly engage in reflection and evaluation of their 
experiences and further development of their abilities as instigators of 
celebration. 

j. 

A project-report indicating integration of celebration theory and skills, as 
well as members' development as artists-interpreters-instigators of 
religious celebration within the community and within the non-Cluster 
groups with which they have worked will be assessed through self- 
evaluation, peer evaluation, and supervisory evaluation at the end of the 
Unit. 

IV. Admission 

Open to students (1) who have completed one or more years of 
theological education; (2) who have some of the following experiences 

21 



and education — at least minimal ability-experience in an area of ex- 
pressive arts, at least two courses in the general field of liturgy and wor- 
ship, and who have experience in actual situations of communal 
celebration — and; (3) who have obtained the approval of the school in 
which they are matriculated. 



CCTS 1-560 CROSS-CULTURAL COMMUNICATION: INTENSIVE UNIT I 



Spring Quarter, 1980 
2 or 3 Full Courses Credit 
Monday, 9:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. 
Wednesday, 3:30-9:30 P.M. 
Enrollment limited to 20 
Initial session at CTU 



Claude Marie Barbour, and Staff 
Assistant Professor of World Mission 
Catholic Theological Union 



I. Rationale 

The church is at the threshold of a new era. The growing thrust toward 
unity on the economic and political planes, the deeper realization of cultural 
pluralism within that unity, and the greater involvement in the struggle for 
human dignity have all given new thrust and direction to the church's task in 
the world today. 

The global scope and character of the problems demand an equal response. It 
is of the greatest importance that Christians of diverse national, racial, class 
and theological backgrounds, perspective and commitments find ways to 
listen to and learn from one another. If American theological education is to 
make creative contributions to such issues as racism, the use and distribution 
of the world's wealth and resources, the struggles for human liberation and 
the development of societal structures which are more open and just, it must 
do so as a community which has learned to reflect and act in an international 
context. 

For some the response will go further. They desire to be persons of dialogue, 
to live a precarious existence between different cultural worlds. They aim to 
spend their lives, or part of them, with people of another culture, discovering 
ways to think and work together in Christ about the fundamental problems 
which confront the entire human family in relation to peace, justice and sur- 
vival. 

II. Nature of the Unit 

The concentration has a double major thrust which will serve the needs and 
goals of a wide variety of students. On the one hand, it will give high 
priority to those students who desire to work or study in another cultural en- 
vironment and will help them acquire beginning levels of competence for ef- 
fective communication in cultures and subcultures other than their own. 

At the same time, the concentration will provide a wider range of students 
the opportunity to experience in a unique way the cultural assumptions and 
limits of their theological thinking, and to lay the foundation for a broader 
international, interracial and ecumenical understanding, concern and com- 
mitment both in their theological education as well as in their further 
ministry. 



22 






III. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I include the following: 

A. to sensitize students to the diversity of cultural expression; 

B. to assist students to develop skills in the analysis of culture and com- 
munication and to acquire a beginning competence in cross-cultural com- 
munication; 

C. to lay a foundation for students' understanding of, concern for, and 
cooperation in issues of international scope and character; 

D. to help students to interpret their experience to the wider church in order 
to contribute to an international perspective on mission and ministry. 

IV. Structure of the Unit 

There are three principal components in Intensive Unit I: basic theory of 
culture and communication, field placements, integrative discussions ("de- 
briefings"). (Within the scheduled activities students enrolled for two full 
courses credit may negotiate appropriately reduced involvement.) 

A. Basic Theory (Four weeks) 

The theoretical presentations will focus on such matters as understanding 
the ways in which cultural factors influence experiencing and sym- 
bolization, thereby influencing the ways in which communication is 

given and received; understanding the nature of any culture through a 
representative examination of selected contrasting cultures and sub- 
cultures in the light of cultural anthropological perspectives; un- 
derstanding the theological issues involved in the cultural conditioning of 
all experience and symbolization; understanding the nature of the com- 
munication process from theological, psychological and sociological per- 
spectives; and understanding what it means theologically to com- 
municate the meaning of the Christian faith. 

Such understanding will be addressed through the following topics: 

1. Culture: Nature and Origin; Enculturation — Ethnocentrism — Preju- 
dice; Culture Dynamics: Persistance and Change 

2. My Culture: Historical Background, Common Characteristics 

3. Communication Theory : Verbal — dialogue; Non-verbal 

4. Obstacles to Communication: Historical; Cultural 

5. Communication of the Gospel: 
a. Why: Theology of Mission 

b.How: Evangelization: Dialogue (Religious); Witness; Worship 

6. Global Awareness: Peace and Justice; Population Growth; Develop- 
ment 

7. Introduction to specific cultures of field placements. 

B. Field Placements (Three weeks) 

The field placement is an integral part of the Unit. It is designed to offer 
students an opportunity to practice and develop skills and to test theories 
of cross-cultural communication in an authentic or simulated cross- 
cultural life situation. 

During the 1980 Spring term, the type of field placement especially 
recommended will be a three-week intensive "live-in" experience. Other 
types of field placement will be available to those who are able to com- 
mit themselves to some specific cross-cultural situation for at least two 



23 



academic quarters. These latter placements would continue throughout 
the Spring quarter but with greater intensity during last two weeks. 
Recent placements have included the following: 

1. East Africa 

2. Chicano-Indian : on location in rural New Mexico 

3. Latino: in Chicago area 

4. Black: in Chicago area 

All field placements embody the following features: 

1. an intensive community live-in experience in a cross-cultural situa- 
tion; 

2. an opportunity for the practice of cross-cultural skills; 

3. planned supervision and guidance; 

4. availability of a peer group, reflector group or other support group. 

C. Integrative Discussions (Two weeks) 

Following the three-weeks of intensive field placement, students will 
engage in a two-week, post-field "de-briefing" period during which their 
cross-cultural field experiences will be reported on, analyzed and 
critically evaluted from the standpoint of personal learning and growth. 

Every student will be expected to have kept a complete diary (log) of 
field experiences. 

A clear expectation of the "de-briefing" period is that all students will 
evaluate and process their field experience in such a way as to make con- 
crete plans for application in terms of ministry. These plans may be of an 
interpretive or vocational nature. 

V. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students who have completed one or more years of theological 
education and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 



CCTS 1-580 INTERPRETATION AND COMMUNICATION: 
TE ACHING : INTENSIVE UNIT I 

Nature of Unit (Not offered 1979-80) 

Intensive Unit I is designed for advanced students who wish to become in- 
creasingly competent in (1) understanding and integrating basic orientations 
to the substance and style(s) of interpreting and communicating Christian 
faith which are operative in their own life situations and in those of represen- 
tative groups with whom the church engages in ministry; (2) interpreting in 
their historical and contemporary contexts selected dimensions of the Judeo- 
Christian tradition and the modern world which are relevant to such life 
situations; and (3) communicating, and assisting others to communicate, ef- 
fectively through teaching in the light of such understandings and interpretive 
abilities. The concentration is intended to be of value to students who plan to 
engage in a variety of teaching ministries, e.g. in local churches as pastors or 

24 



directors of educational programs; in public or parochial schools as teachers 
or superivsors of teachers; in institutions of higher education as campus 
ministers or professors; and in organizations and agencies of various kinds as 
educational consultants. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which students 
will receive two or three full courses credit. With the approval of the 
respective institutions in which they are matriculated, students who are in- 
volved in the Unit may enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of the Unit include the following: 

A. to assist students to enhance their understandings of the nature and 
dimensions of the hermeneutical task in relation to the life situations of 
people, to the contemporary world, and to the Judeo-Christian tradition 
in light of pertinent philosophical, theological, scientific and artistic per- 
spectives; 

B. to assist students to develop a growing understanding and appreciation 
of (1) the predicaments and possibilities which characterize the life 
situations of individuals and groups, (2) the resources of the Judeo- 
Christian tradition and of other sources of insight which are relevant to 
such predicaments and possibilities, and (3) the teaching-learning theories 
and methods which may be employed to relate these resources to the 
human predicaments and possibilities; 

C. to enable students to function effectively and collegially in enhancing 
specific ministries of interpretation and communication through 
teaching, and in assisting others to function in similar manner; 

D. to assist students to integrate (1) their understandings of the substance 
and style(s) which are appropriate to the relevant interpretation and 
communication of Christian faith in relation to human predicaments and 
possibilities with (2) their personal and professional self-understanding 
and functioning. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three components in Intensive Unit I: an interpretive seminar, 
supervised ministry placements, and an integrative seminar. 
A. Interpretive Seminar 

In the interpretive seminar students and faculty will collegially develop 
teaching-learning activities and, as deemed appropriate, covenants which 
bring their several unique concerns and competencies to bear upon the 
achievement of the general aims of the Unit — particularly those 
represented in A and B above. However, in order to insure the 
availability of certain teaching-learning activities and resources which 
participants may choose to employ but which could not with certainty be 
developed after the Unit has begun, the teaching team has taken the 
initiative to develop two broad sets of complementary options (and their 
correlative networks of resources) which will be discussed fully by all 
Unit participants before final decisions are made regarding their adoption 
and implementation. ( 

If the first broad option is adopted and implemented, early in the Unit 
students will be assisted by the teaching team to acquire familiarity with 

25 



and experience in employing fundamental principles and methods of 
identifying, analyzing, and evaluating basic orientations to the substance 
and style of interpreting and communicating Christian faith through 
teaching. Special attention may be given to acquiring such familiarity 
and experience through an exploration of how these orientations are em- 
bodied, for example, by Unit participants, by persons or periods of 
historic significance in participants' denominations and/or other groups, 
and by certain contemporary Chicagoland churches of various 
denominations and races. In carrying out such explorations through 
several observation visits to the selected churches, whose ministries are 
characterized by unique creativities, consistencies, or constituencies, 
students will be assisted by local clergy and laity in identifying, 
analyzing, and evaluating their respective orientations to content and 
method of interpretation and communication of Christian faith through 
teaching. 

B. Supervised Ministry Placements 

The supervised ministry placements are designed to foster collegial 
realization of the several general aims of the Unit — especially that 
represented in C above. 

If the second of the previously-mentioned broad options which have 
been developed by the teaching team is adopted and implemented, 
student teams (comprised of several members each) will be assisted to 
negotiate placements in settings in which they will serve during the Unit. 
For most student teams, it is anticipated that such placement will be in a 
local church (or ecumenical and interracial cluster of churches) in the 
vicinity of Hyde Park or Oak Brook — Lemont. 

It is not contemplated that student teams will be assigned to provide staff 
leadership for existing educational programs of the church /cluster. 
Rather, team members will serve as educational resource persons or con- 
sultants, together with clergy and laity in the respective settings, in a 
joint endeavor (1) to identify and to assess the effectiveness of the orien- 
tation^) to the substance and style of interpreting and communicating 
Christian faith which are currently employed in selected teaching-learn- 
ing situations, (2) to identify critical needs which can be addressed 
through enhancing the substance and style of such interpretation and 
communication, (3) to design one or more significant teaching-learning 
events to address such needs; and (4) to provide appropriate leadership 
and/or direction in carrying out such event(s). The number of such events 
to be designed and led or directed by each student team will be deter- 
mined by consultation among the student team, the teaching team, and 
the church/cluster representatives. 

As their respective schedules permit, and as the respective placement 
situations indicate, members of the teaching team will participate on 
location with student teams in carrying out the foregoing functions. 
However, it is expected that during the course of the Unit a member of 
the teaching team will participate appropriately in such functions in 
relation to at least one of each student teams' teaching-learning events. 



26 






Through consultative and supervisory relationships with student peers, 
faculty, and church/cluster clergy and laity, student team members will 
have opportunity to develop skills in evaluating process, product, and 
program dimensions of their collective experience. Such dimensions may 
include, respectively, (1) assessment of the planning and interaction 
among themselves and between themselves and those with whom they 
are involved in the respective placement settings; (2) assessment of the 
respective teaching-learning events; and (3) assessment of the con- 
tributions of the Unit-as-a-whole to the equipping of students for in- 
terpretive and communicative ministries through teaching and also to the 
enhancing of the respective churches'/clusters' ministries of this kind. 

Students who wish to explore the possibility of a year-long placement in 
a setting appropriate to the Unit, or who wish to explore the possibility 
of a non-church placement during the Unit should contact the teaching 
team early in the Fall quarter. 

C. Integrative Seminar 

In the integrative seminar students will have opportunity to pursue 
realization of the several general aims of the course — particularly that 
represented in item D above. More specifically, it will provide occasion 
for students to engage in processes of further unifying conceptual, 
emotional, and behavioral dimensions of experience which bear upon the 
development of their personal and professional self-understandings and 
competencies as interpreters and communicators of Christian faith 
through teaching. By such means as may commend themselves to Unit 
participants, effort will be made to draw together experiences in the in- 
tegrative seminar (including observation visits to selected churches) and 
in the respective placement settings. Among such possible means is 
student utilization of the teaching team as resource persons and con- 
sultants in planning, implementing, and evaluating the teaching-learning 
event(s) in which the several teams are involved in their respective 
placement settings. Case studies, audio and video recordings, and in- 
dividual and team evaluation procedures such as those noted earlier will 
also be available to provide constructive feedback and guidance from a 
variety of complementary perspectives for continuing development and 
integration. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students who have completed two or more years of theological 
education and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 

Open also to students with backgrounds in theological and educational 
disciplines and/or with teaching experience who have completed one year of 
theological education and who have obtained the approval both of the 
school in which they are matriculated and of the Interpretation and Com- 
munication teaching team. Approval of the teaching team should be 
requested through an application form which may be obtained from the of- 
fice of the registrar at each school.

CCTS 1-570 INTERPRETATION AND COMMUNICATION: 
PREACHING: INTENSIVE UNIT I 

(Not offered 1979-80) 

I. Nature of Unit 

Intensive Unit I is designed to enable students to achieve competence and ef- 
fectiveness in the preaching task (1) through the interpretation of biblical 
foundations, theological traditions, and contemporary events and human ex- 
periences; and (2) through the functional integration of the interpretive 
task in the context of sermon formulation and proclamation. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which 
students will receive two full courses credit. With the approval of the respec- 
tive institutions in which they are matriculated, students who are in- 
volved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I are: 

A. to assist students to integrate the exegeses of Scripture and theological 
traditions with the exegesis of contemporary realities; 

B. to assist students to clarify and enrich their involvement and iden- 
tification with both the role and content of preaching and the means by 
which it occurs, such as critical analysis of content and reflection upon 
the processes by which preaching happens; 

C. to assist the intensive-mix of students and faculty to become a 
laboratory-model in which the agony and glory of preaching is ex- 
perienced. 

III. Structural Components 

There are five principal components in Intensive Unit I. The scholarly and 
professional preparation of the student will be integrated in terms of these 
components through the use of various theological and functional disciplines 
and various educational methodologies. 

A. Modeling of and participating in the exegeses of Scripture and theology, 
and the exegesis of contemporary human experience; 

B. Researching ways of analyzing Scripture, dynamics by which traditions 
shape theology, and methods of sermon development; 

C. Evaluating critically actual occasions of preaching by students in the 
classroom and in the parish and by selected preachers in the Chicago 
area; 

D. Exploring possibilities of various forms in which proclamation happens, 
such as story telling, conversation, prophetic confrontation, and media; 
and 

E. Ongoing supervision by participating faculty, student peers, and lay per- 
sons. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students (1) who have completed one or more years of theological 
education; (2) who have completed at least two courses in biblical studies, 
two courses in history and theological thought, and one course in preaching; 
and (3) who have obtained the approval of the school in which they are 
matriculated.

CLUSTER PASTORAL CARE 
AND COUNSELING PROGRAM 



I. Program Characteristics 

The Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling is cooperatively- 
resourced by the nine member institutions of the Chicago Cluster of 
Theological Schools. Intended primarily for persons seeking the Doctor of 
Ministry degree in pastoral care and counseling through member seminaries, 
the Cluster program is also open to advanced candidates for certain other 
degrees and for non-degree continuing education. 

Through collaborative planning, staffing, and administration by the 
several schools, participants enjoy access (1) to one of the nation's most 
distinguished ecumenical constellations of teachers and researchers in 
pastoral care and counseling, and (2) to an unusually broad range of super- 
vised clinical opportunities sponsored by outstanding religious, health, and 
social service agencies. 

The Cluster program seeks to equip present and future ministers to func- 
tion effectively in various professional roles and institutional settings which 
require particular competence in the theory and practice of pastoral care and 
counseling. The program presupposes or provides a general base in the in- 
terdisciplinary foundations essential to all forms of ministry . Advanced 
specialized study and service in academic and clinical contexts is integrated 
with this general base. 

Participants in the Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling will 
take courses in metropolitan Chicago in order that, through regular contact 
with faculty and supervisors, the academic and clinical goals of the program 
can be*' optimally realized. Participants may enroll in the program on a part- 
time or full-time basis. 

The Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling is designed to be com- 
patible with participants' concurrent pursuit of training for professional cer- 
tification by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, the 
Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, the American Association of 
Marriage and Family Counselors, and accrediting agencies representing cer- 
tain other areas of competence which are of similar concern to an increasing 
number of religious professionals. 

II. Program Components 

The Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling consists of advanced 
theoretical and clinical components. 

A. Core Seminars 

The theoretical component consists of a three-quarter sequence of core 
seminars team taught by faculty from participating schools. A sequence 
such as the following will be offered each year : 

• Pastoral Care: History and Theology (Fall) 
Robert Moore (CTS) " 

Homer U. Ashby, Jr. (CCTS) 

• Pastoral Care: Personality Theories and Therapies (Winter) 
Paul R. Swanson (LSTC) 

29 



• Pastoral Care: Life Together (Spring) 
Byron Royer (BTS) 

For course descriptions consult Ministry Studies: Pastoral Care and 
Spiritual Direction offerings: CCTS M-602A, B, C. 

B. Supervised Practica 

The clinical component consists of supervised practica of nine months 
duration in settings affording opportunity for pastoral care and coun- 
seling ministry related to one or more of the following areas of com- 
petence: 

• Care of congregations (interpreting, enhancing, and integrating each 
ministerial function within the congregation from a pastoral care 
perspective) 

• marriage and family counseling 

• individual and group psychotherapy (including perspectives therein af- 

forded by psychoanalysis, Gestalt, transactional analysis, psycho- 
synthesis, and other points of view) 

• geriatric issues 

• alcoholism rehabilitation 

• minority group issues 

• religion and medicine 

• community mental health 

• clinical pastoral education 

Students may develop case material for supervision either in the 
clinical setting of the practicum or in their own work setting. The prac- 
ticum will typically consist of a weekly case conference, a weekly session 
of individual supervision, and didactic sessions as arranged by the super- 
visor. 

For course descriptions consult Ministry Studies: Supervised Ministry 
offerings: CCTS M-620A, B, C through CCTS M-638A, B, C. 

Centers currently approved by the Cluster for supervised practica in- 
clude the following: 

• Alcoholism Treatment Program, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, 
Northwestern University Medical School 

• Billings Hospital, The University of Chicago 

• Christ Hospital 

• Edgewater-Uptown Community Mental Health Center 

• Pastoral Counseling Ministry Institute 

• Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center 

• Wholistic Health Center 

It is anticipated that other specialized areas of competence and other 
centers will be developed in the future. 

III. Program Participants 

The Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling is offered to four 
groups of participants, who may selectively employ its theoretical and 
clinical components to achieve their respective learning goals within 
guidelines established by the participating schools in which they are enrolled. 

A. Second Professional Degree Candidates

Ministers with three or more years of experience who are seeking the D.Min.in 
pastoral care and counseling as a second professional degree through Chicago 
Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, McCormick 
Theological Seminary, Meadville/Lombard Theological School, or Northern Bap- 
tist Theological Seminary, may utilize components of the Cluster program in com- 
pleting the required one year of full-time study (or its equivalent in part-time 
study) in residence beyond a first professional degree (M.Div.). 

B. First Professional Degree Candidates 

Advanced ministerial candidates seeking the D.Min. in pastoral care 
and counseling as a first professional degree through Chicago Theological 
Seminary or Meadville/Lombard Theological School may utilize 
components of the Cluster program in completing the required four years 
of full-time study (or its equivalent in part-time study) beyond an un- 
dergraduate baccalaureate degree. 

C. Other Degree Candidates 

A limited number of advanced students seeking other graduate 
professional or academic degrees (e.g., M.Div., S.T.M., Th.D.) through 
any Cluster school may utilize components of the Cluster program in 
pastoral care and counseling as elective options in such degrees. 

D. Non-degree Candidates 

A limited number of ministers with three or more years of experience 
who are seeking non-degree continuing education through any Cluster 
school may utilize components of the Cluster program in pastoral care 
and counseling in achieving their individual learning goals. 

IV. Additional Options 

Significant complementary resources strengthen and enhance the Cluster 
program in pastoral care and counseling. 

A. The Cluster Schools 

Participants in the Cluster program enjoy tuition-free cross-registration

CLUSTER INTERINSTITUTIONAL 
TEAM-TAUGHT COURSES 

In addition to the previously described Areas of Concentration, the Cluster also 
offers team-taught courses which draw in an integrative, but less intensive, manner 
upon the resources of its member schools and the metropolitan Chicago area. 
These courses involve ecumenical and, frequently, interdisciplinary teaching teams, 
and are characterized by concern for students' personal-professional development 
and by concern to draw imaginatively upon the resources of significant persons, 
programs, and settings in the wider community. 

Such courses are especially designed to enable students to experience the 
enriching and stimulating give-and-take of dialogue and service in various 
ecumenical contexts without requiring the larger investment of time and com- 
mitment which are necessitated by the Cluster Areas of Concentration. 

Admission is open to students through the regular cross-registration procedures 
which are operative among the Cluster schools.

Symbol and Myth in the Bible 

Modern biblical studies, especially text, source, 
form- and redaction-criticism, have succeeded in 
expressing many historical and literary aspects 
of the Bible. But they have failed to express a 
religious appreciation of the text in its symbolic 
and mythological depths. In this course we will 
address this issue by exploring fundamental ex- 
periences of appreciation in our culture, but in- 
terpreting biblical texts in post-critical religious 
fashion, by formulating the interpretative prin- 
ciples of this post-critical appreciation, and by 
applying those principles in practice. Students 
are expected to have completed basic 300-level

Unit I 

The Intensive Unit has a double major thrust 
which will serve the needs and goals of a wide 
variety of students. On the one hand, it will give 
high priority to those students who desire to 
work or study in another cultural environment 
and will help them acquire beginning levels of 
competence for effective communication in 
cultures and subcultures other than their own. 
At the same time, the concentration will provide 
a wider range of students the opportunity to ex- 
perience in a unique way the cultural assump- 
tions and limits of their theological thinking, 
and to lay the foundation for a broader in- 
ternational, interracial and ecumenical under- 
standing, concern and commitment both in their 
theological education as well as in their further 
ministry.

The Church's Peace Ministry : Issues and 

Perspectives 

What can the churches contribute to world 
peace? What understandings of world peace 
might guide religious thought and action toward 
a world without war? What theological and 
political standards are involved in setting limits 
and determining priorities for peace activities? 
How can the concern for world peace become a 
regular part of ministry at every level of church 
life? Eight Chicago-area seminary faculty in- 
cluding the instructors of this course have met 
regularly as the curriculum development task 
force of the World Without War Council — 
Midwest to design a course addressing these 
questions. The course is expected to treat such 
topics as: the global political conditions for 
peace; the means and limits of citizen action for 
peace in the United States, with special em- 
phasis on the role of the churches; and the 
theological bases for, and meanings of, the 
issues of global politics and citizen action.

CLUSTER INTER-CAMPUS COURSES 

A special curricular structure, known as "Cluster Inter-Campus Courses" has 
been created to encourage and facilitate interchange, especially between urban 
and suburban member schools. Several outstanding electives which are representa- 
tive of various disciplines and heritages in the Cluster are offered at locations which 
constitute an equitable distribution of travel time among the participating students. 
Each course is scheduled to meet only once a week and to avoid rush-hour traffic. 
The first session of each course is held on the campus of the designated instructor. 
Thereafter the number of students enrolled from the respective seminaries provides 
the basis upon which each class will work out an equitable determination regard- 
ing the location and number of future weekly sessions. Such a principle of 
operation permits the location at which each Cluster Inter-Campus Course is of- 
fered to be highly responsive to the level of interest and initiative of students from 
the respective schools.

The Church's Peace Ministry: Issues and 

Perspectives 

What can the churches contribute to world 
peace? What understandings of world peace 
might guide religious thought and action toward 
a world without war? What theological and 
political standards are involved in setting limits 
and determining priorities for peace activities? 
How can the concern for world peace become a 
regular part of ministry at every level of church 
life? Eight Chicago-area seminary faculty in- 
cluding the instructors of ,.this course have met 
regularly as the curriculum development task 
force of the World Without War Council — 
Midwest to design a course addressing these 
questions. The course is expected to treat such 
topics as: the global political conditions for 
peace; the means and limits of citizen action for 
peace in the United States, with special em- 
phasis on the role of the churches; and the 
theological basis for, and meanings of, the 
issues of global politics and citizen action.

mission take in China? Will Christianity 
without buildings, institutions or clergy be able 
to survive? ($ Tuition required)

The Growth of the Christian Tradition: A 

History of Christian Doctrine. 

Broadly speaking, it will be the purpose of this 
course to investigate what the Christian Church 
believed, taught, and confessed in its encounter 
with the world around it. The sources for this 
critical study will be many, including the lives 
of saints and sinners, the teachings of Church 
fathers and mothers, the decisions of church 
councils, the development of the liturgical life of 
the Church, the formation of the institutional 
expressions of the Church's mission, the in- 
fluence of great controversies both within and 
without the Church, and the importance of 
significant moments of crises as the Church en- 
countered movements in human history — 
political, economic and cultural. The fun- 
damental issue which the course will raise is 
whether or not, given all the diversities which 
run throughout the Church's story, there is in- 
deed a Christian tradition as such, and if so, 
what its essential elements are. The thesis of the 
course is that a critical understanding of the 
nature and growth of such a tradition is clearly 
necessary for reflecting upon the Christian life 
and thinking about the calling of the Church.

Theology of Priestly Ministry 

The nature of ordained ministry in the Church 
has become a "disputed question" in Roman 
Catholic theology. The purpose of this course is 
to seek some guidelines and principles for 
fashioning a new theological interpretation of 
"priestly" ministry in a Roman Catholic con- 
text. Some attention will be given to the 
historical origins and development of this 
ministry, but the bulk of the time will be 
devoted to the contemporary state of the 
question, as reflected in the writings of such 
authors as Rahner, Schillebeeckx, Kung, Cooke, 
Kasper, Fransen and others. By relating the cen- 
tral question to Christology and Ecclesiology, 
some basis will be sought for judging respon- 
sibly such issues as the "permanence" of priestly 
office, the appropriateness of celibacy for this 
office, and the ordination of women. The for- 
mat will be that of a seminar, with substantial 
weekly reading assignments as the basis for in- 
formed, critical discussion of the issues. Par- 
ticipants will be asked to write a brief paper (1-2 
pages) each week, in response to a question 
about the readings. The grade will be deter- 
mined by the quality of these papers and by 
participation in the discussions. No term paper.

be examined the phenomenon of the rapid ex- 
pansion of Independent Churches and Messianic 



movements breaking away or growing apart 
from Western missionary churches. A study of 
the African Christian doctrine and practices 
developed by these emerging churches and their 
significance will help us to understand the 
process of contextualization throughout Africa, 
with particular attention given to the case study 
of a church in Southern Africa in the process of 
contextualization.

History of Biblical Interpretation 

After a brief consideration of the most 
significant hermeneutical approaches in earlier 
times (e.g. Zumran, the rabbis, Philo, Origen) 
we shall focus attention on major interpretive 
systems since the sixteenth century, and 
especially since the Enlightenment. Throughout 
we shall seek to keep in view such questions as 
these: To what extent has each system drawn 
on the intellectual culture of its time and been 
molded by it? What have been the generic 
relationships between systems? What positive

values has each system offered the life, thought

Jesus 

A basic entry course into the study of the New 
Testament focusing on the first three gospels. In 
lectures and discussion, we concentrate on the 
Gospel of Mark as a literary expression of early 
Christian faith; on expressive forms, such as 
parable, saying and pronouncement story, as 
major sources for reconstructing the life and 
faith of early Christianity and the activity of 
Jesus: on the constructive powers of symbol 
and myth in the gospel traditions; on the 
Gospel of Matthew as an early interpretation of 
the gospel genre; on Palestine as the world in 
which Jesus acted; and on the passion and 
resurrection narratives. Through discussion, 
assigned readings, exegetical work and critical 
essays, we help participants to cultivate a sen- 
sitive, critical ear for listening to texts and to en- 
vision the fruitful relations between com- 
mitment and criticism and the relation between 
the complementary tasks of historical recon- 
struction and theological interpretation.

JSTCB-554 (=JSTCT-554) 
Theology of Ministries 

The present renewal of the Roman Catholic 
Church involves the discovery by many 
laypeople that there is a plurality and diversity 
of ministries in the life of that Church (not just 
the official ministry of the clergy). This 
discovery is a matter of praxis, but there is a 
great need for theory to ground and clarify that 
growing praxis. This course will proceed both 
historically and systematically, in order to trace 
the growth and metamorphoses of ministries in 
the Church and to clarify the foundational un- 
derstandings of Christ, Church, and Salvation 
which underlie the various forms of Church 
order. The goal of this historical and critical 
work is to construct a positive theological 
position which could ground a renewed style of 
Church life and a plurality of ministries. The 
format will be a combination of lecture and 
discussion. Students will be expected to do sub- 
stantial amounts of weekly reading, in order to 
take part actively in an informed, critical 
discussion of the issues raised by the professors. 
Accountability will take the form of several 
short papers during the quarter, and an 
examination-essay at the end.

The Growth of the Christian Traditions: A 

History of Christian Doctrine 

Broadly speaking, it will be the purpose of this 
course to investigate what the Christian Church 
believed, taught, and confessed in its encounter 
with the world around it. The sources for this 
critical study will be many, including the lives 
of saints and sinners, the teachings of Church 
fathers and mothers, the decisions of Church 
councils, the development of the liturgical life of 
the Church, the formation of the institutional 
expressions of the Church's mission, the in- 
fluence of great controversies both within and 
without the Church, and the importance of 
significant moments of crises as the Church en- 
countered movements in human history — 
political, economic and cultural. The fun- 
damental issue which the course will raise is 
whether or not, given all the diversities which 
run throughout the Church's story, there is in- 
deed a Christian tradition as such, and if so, 
what its essential elements are. The thesis of the 
course is that a critical understanding of 
the nature and growth of such a tradition is 
clearly necessary for reflecting upon the 
Christian life and thinking about the calling of 
the Church. Part One: From the Development 
of the Catholic Tradition to the Evolution of 
Medieval Theology (4th to 15th Centuries). Part 
Two: From the Age of Renaissance and Refor- 
mation to the Age of Reason (15th to 18th Cen- 
turies). Note: In so far as possible, each of the 
two quarters of this course has been designed to 
be taken independently. They are, nevertheless, 
part of one story and it is highly recommended 
that students should take Part One before at- 
tempting to take Part Two.

Confirmation 

General introduction of the sacraments as 
saving Christological and Ecclesiological acts. 
The nature, number, purpose and causality of 
the sacraments is considered with emphasis on 
modern theological discussion and ecumenical 
import. Baptism and confirmation are con- 
sidered precisely as acts of the Church. The 
rights and duties they confer on each person is 
studied as is their relation to each other and to 
the Eucharist.

Theology of Ministries 

The present renewal of the Roman Catholic 
Church involves the discovery by many 
laypeople that there is a plurality and diversity 
of ministries in the life of that Church (not just 
the official ministry of the clergy). This 



discovery is a matter of praxis, but there is a 
great need for theory to ground and clarify that 
growing praxis. This course will proceed both 
historically and systematically, in order to trace 
the growth and metamorphoses of ministries in 
the Church and to clarify the foundational un- 
derstandings of Christ, Church and Salvation 
which underlie the various forms of Church or- 
der. The goal of this historical and critical work 
is to construct a positive theological position 
which could ground a renewed style of Church 
life and a plurality of ministries. The format 
will be a combination of lecture and discussion. 
Students will be expected to do substantial 
amounts of weekly reading, in order to take 
part actively in an informed, critical discussion 
of the issues raised by the professors. Ac- 
countability will take the form of several short 
papers during the quarter, and an examination- 
essay at the end.

Communicating the Religious Message in an 

Age of Science 

In this course the following goals will guide the 
study: (1) to introduce students to theologies 
and theologians which seek explicitly to address 
the contemporary scientific and technological 
worldview; (2) to acquaint students with basic 
work in philosophy of science and theological 
methodology which are relevant to such 
theological address; and (3) to assist students 
who are already familiar with matters represent- 
ed by goals (1) and (2) further to advance their 
understandings in these and/or related areas. In 
approaching such goals two methods will be 
emphasized: (1) individual tutorial sessions 
which will help the student to advance at 
his/her own pace, to deal with new per- 
spectives, and to prepare a research paper; and 
(2) seminar sessions which will deal with 



78 



Ethical Studies 



readings corresponding to the first two goals 
mentioned above. Readings in theology may in- 
clude issues such as those raised in Peacock's 
Science and the Christian Experiment, Teilhard 
de Chardin's Phenomenon of Man, Cobb's A 
Christian Natural Theology, as well as those 
treated in selected works of the convenors. 
Readings in the methodology and philosophy of 
science may include issues such as those dealt 
with in Gilkey's Religion and the Scientific 
Future, Barbour's Issues in Science and Religion, 
Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, 
Margenau's Open Vistas. Prerequisites: at least 
two courses in systematic or philosophical 
theology, and approval of the convenors. Scien- 
tific background helpful but not necessary.

Advanced Seminar in Theology and the 

Sciences 

The seminar is designed as a forum for papers 
by theological and scientific faculty and ad- 
vanced students. It seeks to move toward a 
theology which is solidly grounded in the best 
of today's scientific understandings and which 
at the same time may be dynamic in eliciting 
religious feelings and behavior characteristic of 
the best Christian tradition whereby persons are 
led to appreciate the reality of God's sovereign- 
ty and grace which are manifest in environing 
nature and in human forms, and to find thereby 
a new meaning, hope, sense of duty, and 
beatific perspective in God's realm. 

Each weekly session will be the occasion for the 
presentation and critical evaluation of one or 
more papers exploring an interpretation of 
historic religious doctrines in the light of the 
sciences. Among the historic religious doctrines 
that may be interpreted are such primary 
Christian categories as God, Creation, Human 
Nature, Sin, Salvation, Church, Revelation, and 
Mission to the World. No specific topic is ex- 
cluded per se, no matter how out of theological 
favor it may presently be or how seemingly in- 
congruous with recent secular doctrine. For the 
seminar, the light of the sciences will be sought 
primarily through focus upon the so-called 
"hard" sciences that have provided a new world 
view or "metaphysics. "These sciences include, 
physics, biology, sociobiology, and psycho- 
biology. However, this primary focus does not 
exclude perspectives from the psychosocial 
sciences, which will also be heavily involved. At 



the core of this activity the seminar will explore 
and test a basic hypothesis: that recent scientific 
information suggests that evolving 
psychobiological and sociobiolobical systems 
require religions as value cores, that the 
traditional religion of each culturetype has been 
selected for the same kinds of life-producing 
wisdom as have been selected in the genotypes 
for all animal organisms and societies, and that 
all of this is generated and selected by a creative 
system of dynamic reality for transcending any 
of its creatures. 

Admission for credit: While the seminar is ex- 
pected primarily to involve the presentation of 
papers by faculty and advanced students, ad- 
mission for credit is also open to other students 
whose proposals for a paper to be presented and 
whose background in theology and science is 
deemed satisfactory by the convenors. High per- 
formance in CCTS T-472 may be deemed suf- 
ficient for admission, and capacity to discuss 
critically and to advance themes such as those 
published in Zygon, journal of Religion and 
Science would provide excellent grounding for 
any participants in the seminar. 

Admission without credit: Participation is also 
open to Cluster students and faculty who have a 
concern to become more informed about and/or 
to participate in this research and development 
program without obligating themselves to meet 
the specific course requirements. Such persons 
should inform one of the conveners in advance 
of their intention to participate in this manner. 

Requirements for students taking the seminar 
for credit will be (1) to present an original paper 
of some 20-30 doublespaced pages (during one 
of the last five weeks of the quarter) on a topic 
approved by the convenors and to defend it suc- 
cessfully during its discussion, and (2) to present 
a one or two-page critical and constructive 
analysis of the proceedings of each of the other 
papers and discussions in the seminar sessions.

Social Sin, Social Grace: Christian Ethics of 

Participation in Sinful Social Structures 

There is an emerging awareness of the reality of 
global interdependence and of the social con- 
struction of all human reality (including the 
human personality). This course will explore 
some of the questions this raises for Christian life 
and ministry. It will seek to raise consciousness 



of the social networks of which we are a part 
and develop a structural analysis of some of 
them. It will assess the adequacy of various 
Christian conceptions of sin and grace for in- 
terpreting these realities and seek adequate 
criteria for Christian moral evaluation of social 
structures. Finally, it will survey different 
traditional Christian responses to participation 
in social situations in search of a contemporary 
theology of Christian life and ministry in a sin- 
ful and graced social context. 
The members of the class will be asked to do 
common readings and participate in class 
discussion. Each will also be asked to do a paper 
and class report analyzing and evaluating a con- 
temporary social issue for signs of structural sin 
and grace and suggesting lines of Christian 
response and ministry. Possible topics might in- 
clude Christian participation in and response to 
war, the institutional Church, capitalism and/or 
Marxism, multinational corporations, racism, 
and sexism.

Basic Ethical Theory: Systematic Perspectives 

From Karl Rahner 

A seminar which will follow a sequence of 
readings from Karl Rahner's theology. The 
focus will be on the grounding of ethics in 
theological anthropology, on the manner in 
which such an ethics would be developed (both 
as "individual" and as "social" ethics), and an 
examination of the meaning of such an ap- 
proach as "ontological" within theology. This 
will lead to correlation of this approach with 
more "phenomenological" (or descriptive) ac- 
counts of the moral life in J.M. Gustafson and 
H.R. Niebuhr. The purpose of these readings is 
to exemplify an adequate fundamental 
theological ethics (parallel to the concern of 
David Tracy to outline the constituents of an 
adequate fundamental theology). The approach 
will exemplify, then, the effort to achieve in- 



80 



Ethical Studies 



ternal consistency of argument and coherence of 
argument with experience (moral experience, of 
faith). Participants will be thus encouraged to 
develop their own check-list of basic problems, 
of questions which have to be dealt with in con- 
sidering any particular concrete moral problem. 
The objectives of this program will be sought by 
shared readings, discussion of these, in- 
vestigation of some concrete moral problem 
(chosen individually or by small groups) in its 
relationship to these readings and discussions. 
Written memoranda which serve the needs of 
each participant will be read and discussed by 
the instructor, from time to time, and a final 
reflection paper on the work of the seminar as 
understood by each individual participant will 
conclude the requirements. Prerequisite: JSTC

Basic Ethical Theory: Moral Values in Christian 

Life 

This course will be both systematic and prac- 
tical. On the one hand, we will attempt to 
develop an ethical theory based on a 
phenomenology or careful description of human 
acts and values. We will explore the relation- 
ships of person, intention, act, object, and 
situation in a context of relativism versus ab- 
solutism. We will look at some of the meanings 
of sin, conscience, discernment, duty, love, 
freedom, and social responsiblity. On the other 
hand, practical cases will be examined with a 
view of developing an analytic ability to sort 
out and balance values in concrete cases. Each 
student will be expected to participate in class 
discussions and write reaction papers.

Social Ethics in the Latino Context 

Readings from the works of Andre Gunder

political, economic, historical, cultural and

for our class discussion are issues such as: the 
evaluation and description of the social struc- 
ture, the relationship between religion and

The Theology and Practice of the Sacrament of 

Reconciliation 

The purpose of this course is the theoretical and 
practical preparation of ministers for the 
sacrament of penance. It will include a 
systematic grounding of the sacrament in the 
mystery of the Church as community of 
salvation. It will provide a theological rationale 
for the Church's role in the reconciliation and 
healing of the individual. This will involve an 
interpretation of sin as estrangement, as well as 
a social and sacramental view of salvation. A 
survey of the history of the Church's discipline 
of penance will provide some categories and 
distinctions for a systematic account of the com- 
munity's role in reconciliation. The relation of 
pastoral practice with the community's moral 
reflection and canon law will be studied, as well 
as liturgical and psychological dimensions of the 
sacrament. Format will include lectures, 
readings, class discussion, case studies, "con- 
fessional practice" groups. A final oral 
examination will satisfy M.Div. reconciliation 
requirements at JSTC.

epistemological bases for the understanding of 
the person and of human praxis, and c) the 
main thought catergories and socio-political 
structures through which a human and 
humanizing praxis can be realized. While based 
on the texts of the founders of Marxism, the 
course will be the explication of the multiple 
have developed in Marxism throughout its 
history and which are relevant in the present 
situation in Europe, Asia, Latin America and 
Africa.

Effective Pastoral Ministry I 

Two theoretical orientations are making im- 
portant contributions to the emerging un- 
derstanding of contemporary ministry: (1) the 
theological discipline through renewed un- 
derstanding of revelation, ecclesiology and the 
variety of ministries in the Christian tradition, 
and (2) the behavioral sciences through a better 
understanding of leadership styles, com- 
munication skills and the strategies of 
organization development. 

This experience-based course will call upon 
these two forces to serve as the context in which 
the participants' awareness of their own 
ministry and confidence in that ministry is 
heightened, and constructive alternatives to 
ineffective styles of ministry are suggested. The 
one-to-one ministerial context will be em-

members. Special emphasis will be given to 
congregational life-styles and leadership 
development, to new sources for funding and 
alternative styles of professional pastoral leader- 
ship. CHANGING COMMUNITIES course will 
examine the influence of declining membership 
sources upon established (urban) congregations.

Symbol and Myth in the Bible 

Modern biblical studies, especially text-, source-, 
form- and redaction-criticism, have succeeded in 
expressing many historical and literary aspects 
of the Bible. But they have failed to express a 
religious appreciation of the text in its symbolic 
and mythological depths. In this course we will 
address this issue by exploring fundamental ex- 
periences of appreciation in our culture, by in- 
terpreting biblical texts in postcritical religious 
fashion, by formulating the interpretative prin- 
ciples of this post-critical appreciation, and by 
applying those principles in practice. Students 
are expected to have completed basic 300-level 
courses in Bible and theology.

Christian Thought in the West from the 

Enlightment to the Present 

This course will study ways in which Christians 
have thought about faith and the life of the 
Church from roughly 1800 to the present. 
During this time, we have both responded to 
and learned from such forces as enlightenment, 
rationalism, the critical philosophy of science, 
the romantic movement, the emergence of 
historical awareness and historical-critical 
method, Utopian and other socialisms, reductive 
humanisms, the age of colonial expansion, the 



growth of liberal optimism, the development of 
psychoanalysis, the era of world wars, the age 
of decolonialization and the dawning of an in- 
terdependent world. The aim of the course is 
neither to offer a history of these movements 
nor to detail the whole course of concurrent 
theological reflection. It is, rather, to sort out 
and clarify certain patterns in the relationship 
between Christian thought and its modern in- 
tellectual, cultural, and social environment. 
Most of the questions involved are still with us. 
This course is designed to help us understand 
the path by which we have reached our present 
theological situation, and to learn some of 
history's lessons for dealing creatively with it.

Faith and Sacraments 

The chief interest of this course is the ecclesial, 
sacramental structure of the Christian life of 
faith, in the present context of the Roman 
Catholic Church. The intent is to provide a 
theological basis (Christological and Ec- 
clesiological) for a "sacramental spirituality." 
Special attention will be given to the radical 
shifts in the Church's self-understanding which 
have occurred since Vatican II, as these affect 
the theory and practice of sacraments. The 
dialogue between theology and pastoral practice 
will be promoted through the format of team 
teaching. Students will be asked to enter into 
this dialogue actively, in reaction to the lectures 
and assigned weekly reading. Accountability 
will take the form of several short papers during 
the quarter, along with participation in class 
discussion, and a concluding examination-essay.

with some informed critical awareness and to 
sharpen attention to the various considerations 
which are essential to developing one's own in- 
telligent positions on moral issues. 
Students will be asked to formulate a personal 
position on a moral issue (or issues) of concern 
to them. The class will then attempt to analyze 
these (and possibly a few representative articles) 
in an attempt to discover the elements of good 
Christian moral judgment and argument. 
Participants will consider how some basic 
beliefs and theological positions (for example on 
God, Christ, sin, grace, revelation, the Church) 
influence moral judgment and how differences 
in them give moralities different specific shapes 
and characters. The formation of Christian 
character and conscience will receive con- 
sideration, including a brief look at the work of 
Kohlberg and Erikson on moral development. 
Participants will consider some of the ways faith 
influences the interpretation of human ex- 
perience and the types of principles and/or 
procedures which are developed to help form 
moral judgments (from the wholly intuitive to 
the rationalistic). 

The class will be largely seminar discussion 
style. Reading preparation, serious personal 
reflection, short position papers, and open class 
participation will be expected. A final synthesis 
and oral examination will be required.

Toward a Human World Order 

Major global problems such as world hunger 
and starvation, the energy crisis, exploitation of 
the poor by wealthy nations and multi-national 
corporations, and the arms race indicate that 
something is gravely wrong with the current 
world order. Boycotts, inflationary prices, and 
long gasoline lines have raised some con- 
sciousness of the links between personal lifestyle 
and global institutional life. This seminar will 
study analyses of some of these major problems 
and some constructive suggestions for systemic 
changes and lifestyle changes necessary for the 
emergence and survival of a more human world 
order. Special attention will be given to the 
moral responsibility and vocation facing 
Christians in this context — and to the im- 
plications of this for Christian ministry today 
and tomorrow.

Priesthood in the Roman Catholic Tradition 

This course will concentrate on the origin, 
history and developing nature of the priesthood 
and on the theological bases for the various 
models of priesthood in Roman Catholicism.

Cross Cultural Communication: Intensive 

Unit I 

The Intensive Unit has a double major thrust 
which will serve the needs and goals of a wide 
variety of students. On the one hand, it will 
give high priority to those students who desire 
to work or study in another cultural en- 
vironment and will help them acquire beginning 
levels of competence for effective com- 
munication in cultures and subcultures other 
than their own. At the same time, the con- 
centration will provide a wider range of students 
the opportunity to experience in a unique way 
the cultural assumptions and limits of their 
theological thinking, and to lay the foundation 
for a broader international, interracial and 
ecumenical understanding, concern and com- 
mitment both in their theological education as 
well as in their further ministry.

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

CLUSTER LIBRARY SERVICES 

The Cluster supports a vigorous library program which provides many benefits 
to students and faculty. The combined Cluster library collections comprise over 
800,000 volumes and represent one of the largest collections among theological 
consortia in the nation. A Union List of 1700 current periodicals assist Cluster 
library users in locating desired titles. All Cluster library users have access to a 
Cluster Union Catalog of holdings completed in 1979, which is located at the 
Jesuit/Krauss (Lutheran)/McCormick Libraries, and has in it all the holdings of the 
Cluster as well as the Divinity collection of the University of Chicago. The loan of 
books or periodicals between Cluster schools is facilitated by the use of interlibrary 
facsimile devices and a courier system, and direct access to all Cluster libraries is 
provided by a Cluster I.D. card. A staff of twenty library professionals with 
various subject specializations is available to assist users with reference and research 
problems. The Cluster libraries have uniform policies for loan periods, care of 
reserve books, reference books, periodicals and costs for photocopying. 

Other Cluster library cooperative programs that benefit users are a coordinated 
joint acquisitions program for books, periodicals, and monograph series. The 
Cluster libraries participate in the services of OCLC, Inc., a nationally linked, 
computer based cataloguing operation. 

Beyond the Cluster library resources are those of other Chicago seminaries and 
universities, the Chicago Public Library, Newberry Library, and John Crerar 
Library. All Cluster libraries belong to the Illinois Library and Information Net- 
work (ILLINET) which provides access to statewide library resources as well as the 
bibliographic services of OCLC, Inc. 

Each Cluster library has its special strengths or collections. Below is a brief 
description of the kinds of special holdings to be found in the Cluster :

+ The libraries of Jesuit, Krauss (Lutheran) and McCormick are a joint library with 
integrated staffs and collections housed on the Lutheran campus. 

CLUSTER THEOLOGICAL LANGUAGE COURSES 

In addition to the courses in biblical languages listed among the regular course 
offerings, non-credit courses in French, German and Latin are offered through the 
Cluster during each quarter of the academic year as warranted by student interest. 
The aim of the courses is to assist students to achieve facility in reading theological 
literature in the respective languages. Such facility is frequently employed to fulfill 
language requirements for certain degree programs. A nominal fee is charged. For 
further information contact the Cluster office. 

CLUSTER CENTER FOR THEOLOGY AND MINISTRY IN GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE 

Historical Background. Since its inception the Cluster has embodied a deepening 
commitment to the internationalization of theological education. This commitment 
has expressed itself through such diverse forms as extensive World Mission Study 
course offerings, a unique Cluster Area of Concentration in Cross-Cultural Com- 
munication, an Annual World Mission Institute, seminary-sponsored programs for 
overseas study and for faculty-student exchange with theological schools around 
the world, and various local programs planned by, with, and for international 

135 



students and visiting faculty and lecturers from other nations. 

In order to strengthen its commitment to bring international perspectives to bear 
upon all aspects of theological education within its member schools and to secure 
resources to enhance such endeavors the Cluster established a Center for Theology 
and Ministry in Global Perspective. Under the leadership of its Director and with 
the continuing assistance of its International Programs Coordinator and the 
Cluster Committee on International Programs, the "Global Perspective Center" 
(GPC) explores more effective ways of illuminating theological study, ministerial 
preparation, and continuing education with insights and experiences of an in- 
ternational character as well as ways of contributing through the identification and 
elucidation of new theological problems, towards a more effective Church ministry 
in an ever changing world. 

Resources. The GPC offers a rich setting in which to study theology and to 
begin or continue preparation for mission and ministry in a world perspective. 
Ecumenically, the heritages of six Protestant and three Roman Catholic schools of 
the Cluster are complemented by those of other theological schools which com- 
prise the Chicago Theological Institute (q.v., pp. ). Educationally, the 
aforementioned curricular and extra-curricular resources of the Cluster schools are 
enhanced by those of the Chicago Theological Institute and the University of 
Chicago, which latter provides wide offerings in languages and area studies. 
Cluster students from schools located in Hyde Park enjoy significant tuition reduc- 
tion for work taken concurrently in the University and its Divinity School. 

Cluster World Mission Institute 

The ninth annual Cluster World Mission Institute will be held April 9-12, 1980. 
The theme will be "Can a Divided Church Minister towards Reconciliation in the 
Global Village?" With ecumenical and international leadership, the Institute brings 
together students, missionaries, pastors, administrators, and scholars to identify 
and address problems and concerns that are of transcultural and international im- 
port. 

Institute topics in recent years have included The Role of the Missionary, 
Mission in One World, Evangelization and Human Development in the Third 
World, From Independence to Interdependence in World Mission and Churches in 
Revolutionary Situations. A list of available publications, manuscripts, and cassette 
tapes related to previous Institutes may be obtained from the Cluster office. 

CENTER FOR ADVANCED STUDY IN RELIGION AND SCIENCE 

Historical Background. The Center for Advanced Study in Religion and Science 
(CASIRAS) is an independent incorporated institution with an Advisory Board 
comprised of approximately one hundred internationally renowned scholars and 
scientists representing all major disciplines. Since 1970, CASIRAS has developed 
an increasingly close affiliation and effective working relationship with the 
Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools. 

The purposes of such cooperative relationship are to achieve a greater integra- 
tion between the scientific and religious models or images concerning the nature 
and destiny of humans in the context of the reality which created and sustains 
them, thereby to make possible a more effective interpretation of the long-evolved 

136 



wisdom of our religious heritage. The involvement of CASIRAS in the following 
endeavors reflects such purposes. 

Advanced Seminar in Theology and the Sciences. This interschool seminar was 
opened by Meadville/ Lombard Theological School in 1965 under the direction of 
Ralph Wendell Burhoe, and is one of the precursors of interinstitutional Cluster 
faculty and student involvement in an interdisciplinary research project. The 
seminar and related conferences have provided Cluster personnel with op- 
portunities for small-group discussion of new insights from the sciences for un- 
derstanding human nature and destiny with such internationally distinguished 
scientists (including some Nobel Prize winners) as: H. Stanley Bennett, J. 
Bronowski, Sanborn C. Brown, Donald T. Campbell, Theodosius Dobzhansky, 
Alfred E. Emerson, Sir John Eccles, Clifford Geertz, Benson E. Ginsburg, Garrett 
Hardin, Dwight J. Ingle, Aharon Katchalasky-Katzir, Hermann Joseph Muller, 
Michael Polanyi, Van Rensselaer Potter, C. L. Prosser, Arnold Ravin, Harlow 
Shapley, Sol Tax, and Anthony F. C. Wallace. Many of the papers shared by such 
scholars in the seminar have been published in Zygon or elsewhere and represent 
keys to new breakthroughs of the wall separating religious and scientific un- 
derstanding. Local and other theological faculty have also employed the seminar as 
a forum for presenting outstanding papers which foster pioneering understandings 
of a more positive relation of religion and science and which, upon publication, 
constitute a growing literature for such breakthroughs. The current offering, CCTS 
T-572: Advanced Seminar in Theology and Sciences, is described on pp. 

Fellows and Associates. A limited number of theologians and scientists from 
local as well as from West and East Coast institutions have been appointed Fellows 
and Associates of CASIRAS, sometimes for a sabbatical year, where they have 
written papers and books with the benefit and guidance and critical review by 
others associated with the Center. Several ministers have also come to CASIRAS 
as Associates for extended periods of continuing education. Their studies have 
similarly led to significant papers in the field, some of which have been published. 

Courses. From its inception CASIRAS has provided team-taught courses for 
Cluster students pursuing basic professional degrees. In 1970-71 the Center 
pioneered in organizing the Cluster's first year-long sequence, "Man and His En- 
vironment," which involved 12 faculty from 5 seminaries and an ecologist from a 
neighboring university, together with some 20 students from 5 schools. Other in- 
terinsti nationally team- taught courses have followed and a description of the 
current offering, CCTS T-472 : Communicating the Religious Message in an Age of 
Science, may be found on p. 

In addition to offering courses on the basic professional degree level, CASIRAS 
has been involved in thesis advising for advanced academic degrees. Moreover, 
from the outset CASIRAS has participated with faculties of Cluster schools in 
academic planning, including the development of (1) professional degree programs 
for students preparing for ministry and for clergy engaged in continuing 
education; (2) academic doctoral studies for future teachers and researchers within 
the framework of existing degree programs in the Cluster schools; and (3) post- 
doctoral programs for faculty. 

Conferences and Symposia. For many years CASIRAS, together with its af- 
filiated membership society, the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science (IRAS), 
has organized conferences and symposia on religion and the sciences. 

Publishing. CASIRAS is a sponsor of the publication Zygon: Journal of Religion 
and Science, one of whose editorial offices is housed with the Cluster at the 

137 



Lutheran School of Theology. Communications from religious and scientific per- 
sonnel indicate that Zygon has proven to be a valuable resource for those con- 
cerned to provide more effective interpretations of the traditional religious message 
in a scientific age. 

Guided Research and Study. CASIRAS makes available through the Cluster op- 
portunities which are unique among American theological schools for guided 
research and study in the area of theology and the sciences.

Science, 1100 East 55th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60615. Phone: (312) 667-3500, ext.

INSTITUTE ON THE CHURCH IN URBAN-INDUSTRIAL SOCIETY 

The Institute on the Church in Urban-Industrial Society (ICUIS), based at Mc- 
Cormick Theological Seminary, was established in 1966 by the Presbyterian Insti- 
tute of Industrial Relations in cooperation with the Advisory Group on Urban and 
Industrial Mission, Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, World Coun- 
cil of Churches. While retaining these historic relationships, since 1975 ICUIS has 
been located with the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools and has established 
relationships with a wider range of American Denominations. 

The Advisory Group on Urban and Industrial Mission, W.C.C., "recognized the 
Institute on the Church in Urban-Industrial Society as the one centre mandated by 
it to provide information and consultation on training facilities for urban and in- 
dustrial ministries as well as an international reference centre for literature and 
programme information in this field." In line with this mandate ICUIS performs a 
variety of data-collecting and program-resourcing functions. 

As a center for the gathering of information, ICUIS provides an information 
bank which draws upon a continuing flow of case studies, project reports, articles, 
correspondence, books and other materials coming out of the church's involve- 
ment in the issues of urbanization, technological change, international justice 
and human development. This material is selected, annotated, indexed and 
distributed among a world-wide network in a monthly Abstract Service and a 
bibliographic service. Any of the more than 5,000 items in the ICUIS files, which 
are cross-indexed topically and geographically, can be retrieved upon request. 
Retrieval is facilitated by a regular Quarterly Index to the Abstract Service. The 
ICUIS information system is backed by over 100 file drawers of materials on 
issues, projects and studies on urban-industrial mission. 

A recent addition to ICUIS publications is JUSTICE MINISTRIES, a quarterly 
dedicated to urban ministries in the United States. Each quarterly concentrates on 
a different issue with which U.S. urban churches are involved. 

Besides linking people engaged in the church's world-wide urban-industrial 
mission through information exchange, the resources of ICUIS have been used 

as models of involvement by those engaged in urban-industrial and metropolitan 
mission programs around the world; 

as teaching material by seminary and college professors in courses on church and 
society, the theology of mission, metropolitan and regional development, tech- 
nology and culture, and in continuing education and action training programs; 

as research material for students in courses or projects related to the church's 
involvement in social issues ; 

as a program resource by women's associations, couples' clubs, and young adult 

138 



groups in issues related to the international dimensions of urbanization and 
technological change; 
as the basis for mission institutes and orientation programs for those going over- 
seas or for those returning from overseas assignments and for overseas persons 
assigned to ICUIS for periods of specialized study and action; 
as the basis for preparing bibliographies and program materials for special pro- 
gram emphases of church agencies. 

The resources of ICUIS are available to church agencies and local churches 
through the Abstract Service and other publications of ICUIS which provide up- 
to-date information on the international dimensions of the church's 
urban-industrial mission; 
through the indexed material and the background files which provide program 
resources on the issues of metropolitan and technological change world- 
wide ; 
through consultation services to help plan institutes, seminars and conferences 
on the issues and the action involved in the internationalization of 
mission; 
through orientation programs for people going overseas in the service of the 
church or of secular agencies, and week-end seminars for local 
churches. 

Ministers in Industry Program 

For over thirty years the "Ministers-in-Industry" program has put seminary 
students in touch with work life in the industrial and service sectors of the U.S. 
economy. During the summer of 1980, the eight week program will deal with 
"Work in Contemporary Society: Alternative Forms of Ministry." The program's 
central purpose is to develop seminarian sensitivity to the issues which U.S. 
technology and the U.S. economy raise for the church's ministry. 

Students are employed as wage earners in factories and service jobs during the 
summer and participate in a weekly three hour seminar. The seminar outline 
focuses upon the religious, political, ethnic, racial and economic concerns of wage 
earners. Seminar discussions draw upon the students' reflections and insights 
arising from their work situations. A preparatory reading list is provided for the 
sessions. 

Seminar sessions are led by Prof. Poethig. Each participant is expected to con- 
centrate his/her attention on a given area of the work experience and to prepare a 
paper on this particular issue. Past papers have included diaries and journals, 
reflections on religious attitudes, analysis of ethnic and sex competition in work 
situations, rank and file militancy in trade unions, alienation in industrial work. 

Students should begin their summer employment by June 9, 1980, or as soon 
thereafter as possible. An orientation session will be held Thursday, June 5, and 
the final seminar will be held during the final week ending August 1. Students who 
desire may continue their work beyond the conclusion of the seminar. All papers 
will be due no later than August 31. 

Enrollment is open to students who have completed one year of study at any ac- 
credited theological seminary. While the program is offered for 4 quarter hours' 
credit, additional academic and/or clinical credit may be negotiated. Tuition for 
the program is payable to McCormick Theological Seminary at its regular rate for 

139 



the number of credit hours sought. Applications for admission may be obtained 
from ICUIS and should be submitted to ICUIS by May 5, 1980.

Industrial Society, 5700 S. Woodlawn Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60637. Phone:

SPERTUS COLLEGE OF JUDAICA 

In 1978 the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools and the Spertus College of 
Judaica, located in the Chicago Loop, signed an agreement to provide for an ex- 
change of services. Formalized was an already working relationship of free access 
to libraries. More importantly, the agreement provides for free cross- registration 
for students from the Cluster into appropriate Spertus courses and vice versa. Ex- 
change of faculty between Cluster Schools and Spertus College is also recognized 
by this agreement as appropriate. 

Since Judaic Studies are receiving increasing recognition as an important element 
in the training of Christian leadership, both as a means for a fresh perspective on 
Christian roots and as a way of understanding the other major living religion 
within our tradition, the opportunity for exchange with Spertus College provides 
an attractive resource for Cluster students. 

INSTITUTE OF HOLY LAND STUDIES (Jerusalem, Israel) 

Northern Baptist Theological Seminary is a constituent member of the Institute 
of Holy Land Studies located on Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. 

Cluster students desiring a short-term or a full year of study in Israel in terms of 
Archaeology, Historical plus Physical Geography of the Holy Land, Modern 
Hebrew, Jewish or Arab Studies, etc. may apply through Northern for admission 
into one of the programs. Tuition is payable to the Institute. 

Information concerning the programs, costs, housing, etc. is available from 
Dean Gerald L. Borchert, a member of the Executive Committee. 

CHICAGO THEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE 

The Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools enjoys a cordial and fruitful 
working relationship with the Chicago Theological Institute (CTI), which is a con- 
sortium of five theological schools located in the northern metropolitan area of the 
city. The member institutions of CTI are Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary 
(United Methodist), North Park Theological Seminary (Evangelical Covenant), 
Seabury-Western Theological Seminary (Episcopal), Trinity Evangelical Divinity 
School (Evangelical Free) and St. Mary of the Lake Seminary (Roman Catholic), 
an associate member. Each of these five institutions embodies a unique theological 
tradition or denominational affiliation which complements and enriches those 
represented among the nine schools of the Cluster. 

By common agreement between the two consortia students other than those pur- 
suing academic doctorates in each member school enjoy tuition-free cross- 
registration privileges in all other member schools. Most Cluster students thus 
have broad functional access without additional fees to significant curricular 
resources in fourteen theological schools which collectively represent a richness 

140 



and diversity of ecumenical perspectives and theological traditions unduplicated in 
any other local setting. 

The procedures for cross-registering into CTI schools are identical to those for 
cross-registering into Cluster schools. Information regarding CTI course descrip- 
tions and schedules is available in the office of the dean and registrar at each 
Cluster school. Such information may also be obtained from the office of the dean 
or registrar of the respective CTI schools :

CHICAGO AREA COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES 

In addition to certain informal cooperative agreements which the Chicago 
Cluster of Theological Schools and its member institutions enjoy with various 
colleges and universities in the metropolitan area, one or more Cluster schools en- 
joy formal relationships with various local institutions of higher education. 
Through such relationships students at the respective seminaries enjoy correspon- 
dingly expanded and enriched educational offerings as well as a variety of signifi- 
cant benefits which may include participation in joint-degree programs; tuition 
reduction for course work; library privileges; and access to health services, 
cultural activities, and recreation facilities. 

The local colleges and universities with whom the respective Cluster schools en- 
joy such relationships are the following: 

DePaul University (DIT) 

Loyola University (JSTC, MTS) 

University of Chicago (CTS, CTU, JSTC, LSTC, M/L, MTS) 

University of Illinois at Chicago Circle (MTS) 

George Williams College (NBTS) 

Rosary College (MTS) 

Wheaton College (NBTS) 

Full particulars on these several relationships may be obtained by consulting the 
catalogs of the respective Cluster schools.
